One of the biggest local cricket matches in recent memory will take place today (Saturday) at Oakham Cricket Club as the two best sides in the county take each other on with the winner likely to win the league title.
Leicestershire and Rutland Division Three leaders Oakham take on second place Uppingham Town from 1.30pm.
One of the Rutland club’s looks certain to win the league with Oakham edging the two sides by just six points at the start of play. With a potential 25 points available for the winner, victory would put either side in the driver’s seat to take the title.
The match will also be the club’s first Ladies Day.
There will be lots of fizz and things with cream and strawberries on and the club will be raising money to be split between Oakham Cricket Club Juniors and Hope Against Cancer.
Get down and support your local club on a great sporting occasion.
